Strains phenotypically indistinguishable from Escherichia coli and belonging to at least five distinct cryptic lineages, named Escherichia clades I to V, that are genetically divergent from E. coli yet members of the genus have been recently found using multi-locus sequence typing (MLST). Very few epidemiological data are available on these strains as their detection by MLST is not suitable for large-scale studies. In this work, we developed a rapid PCR method based on aes and chuA...[Show more]
